Kar Don, I've recently learned that you can indeed layer OC, according to a number of pro detailers at Autopia who were relaying info given to them directly by Optimum. First 30 days, no problem, after the first 30, a light polish first then relayer. But, please confirm with Optimum for yourself. (edit: I should say it hasn't always been like this, but I think for year(s) now; I read they fiddled with the "resin binder" or something like that, and I think this goes for Opti Guard too.)

I've never used OC, and before I used to desire putting it on my wheels, but when I get around to a "permanent" type of coating on my wheels, I'm going to try Meguiar's BDB following TJPark's guidelines. (Lot cheaper Not for paint of course.)
